Welcome to our Inclusion page.
We understand that there is a lot of information around Special Educational Needs and Disabilities (SEND) therefore, if you would like any further clarification, please contact our Inclusion Leader, Mrs Hill, by calling the school office or emailing email@example.com.
Our Inclusion Leader oversees the day-to-day operation of the school’s SEN and Inclusion Policy and co-ordinates the provision for children who require additional support.
“All children and young people are entitled to an appropriate education, one that is appropriate to their needs, promotes high standards and the fulfilment of potential. This should enable them to achieve their best; become confident individuals living fulfilling lives; and make a successful transition into adulthood, whether into employment, further or higher education or training”
(SEN Code of Practice, 1st May 2015)
At St Paul’s, we are committed to ensuring all children reach their full potential and become confident learners; ready to take the next steps in their journey in becoming a young adult. We understand that for children with additional needs, effective support and needs based provision is essential. We therefore work closely with the child and parents and carers to ensure we are assessing, planning, implementing and reviewing the needs of any child with a SEND in line with the SEND Code of Practice (January 2015).
